Although heavily modified, the series bears close resemblance in the overall arch of an infiltrated government official, the web of double crosses concerning military industry, its highly nationalistic tone and even title, to Verräter (1936), a German propaganda film produced by the UFA under Joseph Goebbels. The movie is now considered (despite its original use) a thriller masterpiece, and became the highest grossing film in Europe, winning several awards. See more »
Completely destroyed by bombing in May 1941, the House of Commons at the Palace of Westminster was not used again until rebuilding was completed in 1950. The Commons used the House of Lords chamber instead, so the parliamentary scenes should show red seating, not green. See more »
A series everyone should watch, no matter their age.
The characters may not be real but the story facts are. If you research the history of post war England, you will better understand it. This is not different than todays political climate. This is the first episode and I can see the character build up. It is going to be a very touchy, political series and I suppose people who do like this series care about how the current political world evolved and is going. The world today is in political disarray and due to many developments and leaders, especially with Trump being the President of a sliding nation. If you wasn't impressed with the first episode, hang in there, things will become more clear.
